Well, due to continued silence on an actual publishing-in-print front, I’ve finally decided to release my Stargate Atlantis stories as fan fiction doled out through a blog. Each week will feature a new chapter of the “book”. That way I get reader feedback immediately and know how I’m doing according to my audience. I first got the idea actually from Stargate Atlantis writer and producer Joe Mallozzi’s blog, so thanks Joe! And I hope everyone likes this.
Each book/episode’s first entry will be what on an actual in your hand book would be the front and back covers. Then the book’s final entry will be the Epilogue as well as the Acknowledgements for that particular story.
Well, here it goes!
SG-1 got theirs in the form of Vala Mal Doran, now Atlantis’ flagship team gets a new team member…
The heroic men and women of the once lost Ancient city-ship known in legend as Atlantis have returned their beloved city to the Pegasus Galaxy. The journey was dangerous, but now they are home.
Things return to normal, well…As some old personnel transfer out of the city back to Earth, including someone very near and dear to a member of the flagship team, new personnel arrives including a brand new Lieutenant…and her young child. But all is not as it seems.
Betrayal and a tide-turning secret lies at the heart of her arrival. Changing the dynamics of the city’s senior staff forever. The city has a history of poor luck with Lieutenants, can this young woman survive?
Her first mission with her new team may test her to her life’s limits, but it will also reveal that an old enemy that Atlantis believed dead and cremated is alive and well and not finished with them yet.
So, want to read more?
Sounds like there are some possibilities with your idea. I’d recommend a thorough spell check before publishing your work though. Some spelling errors can distract the reader from the story.
When do you plan to publish the first chapter?
Friday, Sept. 7.
Great Start, But now its time for the nitty-gritty!!
I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a
very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me
to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer
to create your theme? Exceptional work!
Actually I don’t hire out to a designer. When I signed up for the blog, WordPress actually gives you a selection of templates to choose from and I simply picked out the one I liked then I searched sites like Stargate.MGM.com and Gateworld.net for photos of the cast that I liked, cropped it down to fit the main photo on my site, and dowloaded it onto the page. It was really easy and it’s all because of WordPress. They’re great!
